1453, The Holy War For Constantinople and the Clash of Islam and the West
by Roger Crowley
- 304 PAGES
Crowley recounts the dramatic events leading up to and surrounding the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks in 1453 in this nicely paced history. He (like many before him) writes not only of Europe's loss of the Eastern Roman capital but also of the polyglot, tolerant Ottoman city which took its place.
